Crazy, cool, pretty.

Your work is just fantastic! Welcome to Seattle, btw. I hope you don't mind our rainy weather (at least today and tomorrow are supposed to be nice, though)!
I notice a few these newer models have locations for gemstones. Do you set the stones yourself? I'd love to hear more about the gemsetting process. Like, what method do you prefer. Are they all claw settings?
have you ever made a jewel with Zsphere? do you start making a ring in Zbrush with a Ring3d or a Sphere 3D and working with brushes or with ZSphere, or you make a simple base ring in Modo or Rhino and do brushing on ZB?
thanks again T,
it's always gratifying to hold something you create. even better when it's in platinum with tonally gradated sapphires.
jewelry has become a very fun medium to work in.
T.S.Wittelsbach, your work is sick. I love every bit of it!!
absolutely amazing piece of art and craft,your works made me think again and wanting to make some rings for my self,as your pipeline in zbrush,do you used alphas or just all details by hand?in one of your past images a bracelet or ring of dragon with scales that i wonder if you put every scales by hand or use alphas?is there specific setting you use for your Brushes?i think must of your details was crafted by layer brush.
very inspiring works indeed.
I used the layer brush a lot but now i tend towards the form brushes.
I didn't even know what projection master was until last year when Paul G wanted to see what my process was and he introduced me to many of the wonderful features of zbrush lmao.... i used to just use brushes and sculpt. I don't use a lot of alphas except for doc grabs so I can reuse sculpted elements. I very rarely get into and change the brushes all i do is screw things up .... I'm a sculpt at high geometry decimate the hell out of it afterward kind of guy. one day I'll learn what a UV is and how i can use it lol.....
thanks for the kind words,
